Ref and tactics ensnare Antelopes

14 October 2013, 10:45

The Waila Antelopes sprung out of the gates eager to take advantage of their home field and score early. They were aggressive and persistent but rather than focus on perfecting that final pass, exhausted too much time playing to the galley. One attack for instance featured four back heel passes and there is no coach on earth that would not consider that reckless showmanship and best left in the circus.

One coach that was impressed with their overall play was Keshi himself who said “"Ethiopia were awesome today - they played good,". Keshi also revealed part of his game plan which was to play possum in the first half and conserve energy. This explains why he was constantly looking at his watch."We (went) with our game plan, we just wanted to see how Ethiopia play at home," he told Fifa reporters afterward.
